Package        : drupal
Vulnerability  : arbitrary command execution
Problem type   : input validation errors
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CAN-2005-1921, CAN-2005-2106, CAN-2005-2116

Two input validation errors were discovered in drupal and its bundled
xmlrpc module. These errors can lead to the execution of arbitrary
commands on the web server running drupal.

drupal was not included in the old stable distribution (woody).

For the current stable distribution (sarge), these problems have been
fixed in version 4.5.3-3. 

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 4.5.4-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your drupal package.
